Fabulous location and hotel. Delicious sushi restaurant. Staff were warm and accommodating. Skip the breakfast - plenty of cafes nearby.

6/10 Good

The room was very small. For the price (over $175 per night) it bordered on fraud. Moreover, although I was sure I had requested breakfast to be included I was charged over $30 for one of the most measly breakfasts that I ever gotten in a hotel, including the cheapest motels in America.

we only had three days to visit Zurich so needed a hotel that was within walking distance of all we wanted to do. This boutique hotel ticked all our blocks and we had a great getaway weekend.

A little expensive for us folks from United States for what you get w/ the price. Our room didn't even come w/ a toilet. The breakfast buffet wasn't worth the money.
